If you’re after an SUV with a high-end interior, lots of kit and an economical petrol engine, the Mazda CX-30 should definitely be on your shortlist. But it comes with quite a few shortfalls to be a real contender, such as its lack of low-end performance, tight rear passenger space and relatively small boot. The Skoda Karoq is a much more rounded proposition.

Even base SE-L trim is impressively well equipped with auto lights and wipers, 16in alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, an electronic handbrake with auto-hold function, power-folding door mirrors, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, an 8.8in touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, e-Call emergency response and blindspot monitoring.
The engineSee full engine specs
Despite being a sizeable 2.0-litres in capacity, this engine produces a meagre 120bhp – not much more than some 1.0-litre turbocharged rivals. Performance is alright if you’re prepared to work it hard (0-62mph takes 10.6sec) but lacklustre at low revs. It is economical, though, averaging officially almost 50mpg and it's the best option in the range when you balance performance with the purchase price.
